    Customer challenge


    AB inBev is on a global sustainability drive to reduce energy consumption while maintaining the high-quality standard of its products. To replace the old and inefficient lighting at the brewery.

    Lighting that drives sustainability

    The right lighting 

    The Philips LED technology used in this project was carefully selected to increase light levels while reducing energy consumption and boasting a longer lifespan. Due to the plant environment containing elements of steam, heat and water, a combination of the Philips GreenPerform 120W LED Highbay to replace inefficient 400W HPS luminaires, the Coreline Waterproof 57W to replace 2 x 58W 5 ft T8 fluorescent luminaires and the Philips 200W LED Tango flood lights to replace 400W HPS flood lights, which collectively saved up to 70% or 2,7M kWh per annum of the breweries lighting energy consumption.


    As a result, the carbon footprint of the brewery has been significantly reduced by 2,710 tons per annum, which is very important for the environment and the new carbon tax law. Total cost savings as a result of the project are estimated at R30 million.
